Service Description

The Small Strides - Big Step’s Programme has been developed for vulnerable individuals who are struggling and finding challenges in educational settings, the community or at home. We specialize in working with children or adults on the autistic spectrum and with additional learning needss The program is based on therapeutic horsemanship combined with experimental learning and is designed to improve each participant’s mental and emotional wellbeing and to boost their confidence and build self-esteem. Those with poor concentration soon develop an improved focus when set different activities with the horses. Stress and anxiety can also be reduced as participants benefit from the social and emotional interactions with other individuals and also by forming a bond with their horse. Horses can also act a transitional object, to help participants overcome specific challenges in their lives. The Small Strides – Big Steps programme is a 12 week course and has been structured to help learners progress in a range of different areas. The programme is offered both during term times and school holidays and we accommodate small groups of up to 4 learners or on a 1:1 basis. “The difference in my daughter’s behaviour after a session with Jenny is amazing. She loves her time at Small Strides and I love watching her become totally calm and relaxed. I wish she could do it every day.” “I have been taking my 6 year old son to small strides for the last 3 weeks.. he has autism & concentrating difficulties but has a deep love of animals especially horses... after only 3 sessions he has progressed to being able to just cope with 30 mins to now a full hour session & is absolutely loving it!.... jenny is lovely.. very professional & extremely patient & I'm over the moon with my little boys progress so far! Thanks jenny!”
